Physiology: The Force Behind Healthcare Simulation – A Guide for Techs, Part 9: Sepsis Labs Explained

Inclusion of laboratory tests in clinical simulation scenarios adds significantly to the realism of simulation since lab results are typically available in clinical practice. As sepsis and septic shock with subsequent multi-organ failure are the leading causes of death in adult intensive care units (ICUs), most healthcare simulation programs should consider medical simulation scenarios that [...]

Physiology: The Force Behind Healthcare Simulation – A Guide for Techs, Part 5: Sepsis

This article is the 5th in a series of posts related to physiology, the force behind simulation. Some simulation team members may have a limited background in physiology or medicine. An understanding of basic physiological concepts can enable non medical simulationists to better understand medical simulation. As timely diagnosis and intervention of sepsis are key [...]

Celebrating World Sepsis Day: Understanding Lab and Vital Sign Indicators for Simulated Sepsis Scenarios

As today is World Sepsis Day 2018, we are taking a look at ways to incorporate Sepsis into your simulation learning curriculum. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (2016), sepsis is defined as the life-threatening organ dysfunction caused by a dysregulated host response to infection. Sepsis is a potentially life threatening complication [...]
